Signage has been up for something called Potato Flats at Trinity Groves for several months now, but little was known about the project other than the fact it was another project from legendary restaurateur/Trinity Groves overlord Phil Romano and that it would offer "baked potato creations."
Until now, that is — the Dallas Business Journal got the scoop from Romano on Friday, and explained Potato Flats thusly:
The concept will be similar to that of Chipotle, except its main dish will be baked potatoes. Guests will enter the line where they'll order their baked potato, which will be pressed down to be one- to one-and-a-half inches thick. The guest will then be able to select their toppings from a line of hot pans that will follow the press.Look for it to open in March; Romano "hopes to eventually expand it into schools, airports and food courts."
